This paper reviews the state of the art of untethered, wirelessly actuated and controlled micro-robots. Research for such tools is being increasingly pursued to provide solutions for medical, biological and industrial applications. Indeed, due to their small size they offer both high velocity, and accessibility to tiny and clustered environments. These(More)
—Typical methods of measuring mechanical properties at the micro-scale are destructive, and do not allow proper characterisation on resonant MEMS/NEMS. In this paper, a cartography of local stiffness variations on a suspended micro-membrane is established for the first time, by a tuning-fork-based dynamic force sensor inside a SEM. Experiments are conducted(More)
—In order to characterize the mechanical behavior of fragile resonant microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)/nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), nondestructive measurements are required. In this paper, a cartography of local stiffness variations on a suspended micromembrane is established for the first time, by a tuning-fork-based dynamic force sensor(More)
